Nach Salzburg-Debakel: Bericht über Neuwahlpläne bei Torys

Nach Salzburg-Debakel: Bericht über Neuwahlpläne bei Torys:

Media outlets all over Europe report about a snap General Election as early as November. An emergency Tory meeting is taking place Monday morning and an announcement is expected afterwards.

Also interesting, there are now reports that Jeremy Corbyn changed his stand on a second EU referendum:

Brexit: Zweite EU-Abstimmung wird möglich

Der Kurswechsel der Labour-Opposition erhöht den Druck auf die bisherige Austrittslinie der britischen Premierministerin Theresa May. Neuwahlen sind trotz Dementis nicht ausgeschlossen.

I am aware that rumours have done the rounds for weeks now, but I decided to finally post this now as international press appears to have picked this up. There were so many rumours and contradicting information doing the rounds in UK news outlets over months now, that it is hard to keep track of the signal in all the noise.

Fears of Brexit ‘doomsday’ spark race against time – Independent.ie:

The Government is facing a race against the Brexit “doomsday” clock, including the need to employ 1,000 extra full-time customs and veterinary inspectors as part of contingency plans.

And in today’s FM4 news: http://fm4.orf.at/player/20180719/MO/090015000

The European Union is telling governments and companies to prepare for the scenario of Britain leaving the bloc without an agreement in place. Brexit talks are stalled, and PM Theresa May’s divorce plan has been facing tough oppositions on all sides. Irish Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar has said his government is making contingency plans …

The government is about to start stockpiling processed food in case of ‘no deal’ Brexit:


The government is about
to begin stockpiling processed food in case the country is plunged into
chaos by a “no deal” Brexit.

Ministers came up with the plan after Theresa May allowed planning for a
total break to begin –  and as the resignation of Boris Johnson and
David Davis threw more doubt on her ability to bring off a deal. 

The vast majority of processed food and drinks in Britain are imported,
with 97 per cent arriving from the European Union. 

A stockpile is intended to prevent empty shelves in a situation where
customs arrangements change dramatically and overnight.

Theresa May faces leadership challenge threat from Tory Brexiteers:

This is just getting hilarious.

Theresa May pitched the snap general election as being necessary for the sake of us being able to successfully negotiate Brexit.

The man she put primarily in charge of negotiating Brexit, the Secretary of Stage for Exiting the European Union David Davis, has just resigned in protest of the government’s Brexit vision and strategy, basically throwing in the towel on being involved in this whole shitshow.

So if the last election was vital for Brexit and now the guy in charge of Brexit isn’t in charge of Brexit any more and the PM herself is fighting a constantly-failing two-front war to keep everyone on her side when nobody wants to be, the question needs to be asked:

When is Theresa May going to resign and trigger another election?

Cause it’s gotta be soon, right? The government’s deadline for Brexit that it’s enforced upon itself is in March of 2019. That may seem a fair ways away but the vote to leave was in June of 2016, over 2 years ago, and look at how far this hasn’t come, bogged down by Tory incompetence as it’s been at every step of the process.

There’s no way Theresa May can pretend everything’s fine for another 9 months, that she’s totally got the support to hang onto her job.

This needs to end in an election and it needs to do it soon. To delay the inevitable only serves to destroy further what tiny shred of credibility she can potentially claim to still possess.
